So many accidents | Seth’s blog

The ones we see are negative. The time we slipped and hurt our knee, or the long illness that won’t go away. The gig we didn’t get, or the friend who was scared or lonely.

But we are surrounded by positive accidents, too many to mention. And often, we forget to mention them.

When and where were we born? Having people who give us the benefit of the doubt. Opportunity to read and speak and connect. Surrounded by opportunities that others never even dreamed of.

And then, given these opportunities, the effort was expended and the care extended. The trust we have in others, the smiles we offer or the support we give. Towards all communities and possibilities.

I heard from two of my old friends as well as a dozen new friends yesterday. I met each of them by chance. Each event opens the door for another.

Thank you for so many things. Accidents are included.
